A father prohibits his son from attending the funeral of a fire fighter. Yes. The father was an idiot!

You seem to be making the assumption that he was specifically ground so he could not attend this funeral. I don't see that in the article and the following makes me believe he was grounded for other reasons.

We were talking about how even though what he had done was very nice, we’re trying to go back over the rules that he wasn’t supposed to leave the house. But it’s very touching that he would go and do that for someone.

“He has such a big heart.”

In your home, if your kids were grounded for other reasons, would it be okay to leave the house, without your knowlege or discussing the issue with you first?

What do you think his father’s first thought was when a cop answered his cell phone?

Then why tie the article to the boy attending the funeral?
